There is nothing better in life than to provide these rare opportunities to talented young minds. What find astonishing is a festival with such high caliber of resources: the quality of faculty, facilities and admin’s organizational elements , is THE most affordable summer youth festival in the country. I can only hope the Summer Music Intensive can continue to flourish and reach many more students in the summers to come. Thank you for a wonderful teaching experience!
